2019–21 Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program

The 2019–21 Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program (LGGSP) is a competitive grant program available to all Queensland local governments.

Program details

The 2019–21 LGGSP budget totals almost $58 million, delivered over two financial years.

The primary aim of this program is to provide funding assistance to support local governments to deliver priority infrastructure and essential services that meet the identified needs of their communities.

The objectives of the 2019–21 LGGSP are to support eligible projects that:

  • align with state, regional and local priorities
  • contribute to building safe, connected and livable communities
  • contribute to economic growth and employment
  • maintain and extend the functional life of existing and future infrastructure assets through sustainable asset management
  • build resilience against future natural disasters
  • encourage collaboration and resource sharing between local governments.


We have moved to a new portal to manage the administration of grants to councils. Please visit eGrants or contact your regional office.
